9 Social Movement Stage 1 Business as Usual

10 Business as Usual Get and keep people thinking about the problem AND the solution Support through small groups Spread the word Begin winning people over

11 Fayette County … 10+ years ago CYS, JPO, & MH had a Vision Population: 143, 925 Urban, Rural and Farm Residences Six School Districts

12 Vision: To Improve the Collaboration Between Families and the Childrens Service System One common tool or assessment that all families and childrens service providers could use, and understand Family & providers can all communicate and identify areas of needs, concerns, and strengths together Families dont have to share their stories over and over again Minimize duplication of services

13 Where to Start? CYS, JPO, Behavioral Health (BH) Agreement Researched and found data systems, used ICSP funds (KIDnet & CISS) 2008 Piloted High Fidelity Wraparound 2008 Trained CYS, JPO, & BH Staff on CANS & KIDnet Trained Family Service Providers (FSP) on CANS

15 RIGHTEOUS LESSON Communicate, Communicate, and go back and send out a reminder… Remember things will still not always go as planned, so learn to problem solve and work with what you have, BE POSITIVE, Respectful of Time, & PURPOSEFUL

16 Social Movement Stage 3 Ripening Conditions

17 Ripening Conditions Recognition of problem grows Uninterested become interested Increased awareness and visibility More active local groups Need pre-existing institutions and networks available to new movement Constant outreach

23 Social Movement Stage 5 Perception of Failure

24 Two steps forward …one step back SEE GOALS UNACHIEVED SEE POWERHOLDERS UNCHANGED SEE MOVEMENT AS STALLED PART OF THE MOVEMENT PROCESS ROLL OUT STRATEGIC, ACHIEVABLE OBJECTIVES CELEBRATE AS OBJECTIVES ARE ACHIEVED Perceptions of Failure

25 I have not failed 700 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving that those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work. ~ Thomas Edison

26 Westmoreland, Pennsylvania 2009 population of 362, % < 5 years of age 19.8% < 18 years of age Child Serving Systems not under a human services consortium Base Service Unit acts as the gatekeeper

28 Introducing the CANS to Westmoreland County ICSP Funding Development of CANS Comprehensive –Dr. John Lyons –Key Stakeholders Informational Sessions Train the Trainer Session CANS Roll Out Additional CANS Certification Training

29 Training Challenges … Houston, we have a problem Post-Training Expectations Unclear Administrative Support Lacking Resistance Underestimation of time and effort required in training staff

30 Implementation Challenges Lack of trained and certified staff CANS viewed as a mental health assessment tool Failure to recognize the value of the CANS on multiple levels CANS viewed as a form Lack of ongoing administration support

31 Righteous Lessons System change is Difficult Whats in it for me? Agency Mandates/Requirements Agency/System Administration support is essential Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen Smaller is Better Long Range Plan Reclaim CANS through Training Assistance

32 Righteous Lessons Data Management System Collaboration Revamping CANS Practice, practice, practice CANS as a Transformational Tool

33 TRI-COUNTY COLLABORATIVE Come together…

34 Tri-County Collaboration Shared Resources Problem Solving/Brainstorming Potential for Use of One CANS Across Counties

35 Challenges a Provider Faces Every county has different expectations of providers Different forms, assessments, and other paperwork Unfunded mandates Top down decision making that have unintended consequences

36 How the Tri-County CANS Initiative Impacts our Agency All three counties working collaboratively and seeking our input helps us to be successful. Getting a chance to shape public policy from grassroots level. Agency feels ownership in process, making it more likely for CANS implementation to be successful. Outcomes that will shape future practice.
